Lewis, Katherine E.; Thompson, Grace M.; Tov, Sarah A. – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2022
Researchers intending to identify the unique characteristics of dyscalculia rely upon the problematic and imprecise proxy of low mathematics achievement. Although detailed case studies of adults with dyscalculia have offered insight into its characteristics, we do not yet know if these characteristics are unique to dyscalculia and could be used to…

Kotsopoulos, Donna; Weatherby, Chester; Woolford, Douglas G. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
This research explores the use of guided notes in a post-secondary calculus course and the extent to which use enhanced students' success in a first year calculus course. Guided notes have been previously shown to be perceived as helpful to learning by students, and one study showed that the use of guided notes improved pass rates in a first year…

Zetriuslita; Nofriyandi; Istikomah, Endang – International Journal of Instruction, 2021
The purpose of this study was to identify improvements in Self Efficacy and self-regulated through GeoGebra Based Teaching seen from the level of students' initial mathematical abilities. The research method used was a mixed-method with a sequential explanatory strategy, while the research design was an untreated control group design with pretest…

Johns, Carolyn – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2020
Improving STEM retention is a major focus of universities and studies have shown calculus to be a barrier for STEM intending students. Prior to this study, local data indicated students did not pursue STEM fields because they were not passing calculus. The goal of this study is to report on factors related to student success in first-semester…

Peklari, E. – Online Submission, 2019
The aim of this paper is to examine the range of mathematical abilities of children in Autism Spectrum Disorders. Recent neuroimaging and cognitive studies propose that a particular cognitive pattern which seems to be present in people in the autistic spectrum could be beneficial for the emersion and the development of Savant skills or in the…

Ralph, Vanessa R.; Lewis, Scott E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Students who score within the bottom quartile on cognitive measures of math aptitude have been identified as at-risk for low performance in chemistry courses, with less attention as to "why" such differential performance persists. At-risk students struggle most differentially on assessment items related to the mole concept and…

Özdemir, Duygu Aydemir; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
Mathematically gifted students have skills that may help to improve the country. However, those gifted students attend to regular mathematics classes and undertake the same curriculum at the same pace with other students. Their cognitive or psychosocial needs may go undetected in these classrooms. Thus, the aim of this study is to explore…

Roberts, Sarah A.; Pajela, Hannali – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2022
This study explored the development of professional vision as related to transfer students becoming upper division, four-year mathematics students. We drew from qualitative focus groups with 21 participants at a four-year research university, who were enrolled in a trio of concurrent transitional mathematics courses. We examined the development of…

Marsh, Herbert W.; Pekrun, Reinhard; Lüdtke, Oliver – Educational Psychology Review, 2022
Much research shows academic self-concept and achievement are reciprocally related over time, based on traditional longitudinal data cross-lag-panel models (CLPM) supporting a reciprocal effects model (REM). However, recent research has challenged CLPM's appropriateness, arguing that CLPMs with random intercepts (RI-CLPMs) provide a more robust…

Anazia, Innocent Uche – IAFOR Journal of Education, 2019
This study examined the predictive power of quantitative and verbal aptitudes on the performance of senior secondary school students in Economics. The study arose from the poor performance of students in the Senior School Certificate Examination and the General Certificate in Education Economics. The study adopted descriptive survey research…

Mkhatshwa, Thembinkosi P. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
A relative extrema optimization problem is one in which the domain of the objective function (i.e. the function whose maximum or minimum value is to be found) is an open interval. An absolute extrema optimization problem is one in which the domain of the objective function is a closed interval. Analysis of task-based interviews conducted with 12…

Li, Li; Zhou, Xin; Gao, Xuliang; Tu, Dongbo – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
In this study we investigated the development of 245 kindergarteners' mathematics problem solving (MPS) at two time points within 7 months using a cognitive diagnostic test, which measured three cognitive components (mathematical knowledge and skills, semantic understanding, and quantitative reasoning) with eleven cognitive attributes. The effects…

Strayton, Marianne V.; Lawton, Lisa Watts – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
At the start of every school year, teachers typically wonder what their new students know coming into the grade level. Sometimes, though, they place too much emphasis on what children do not know or have forgotten over summer break. After all, those gaps can be glaring. Helping their students grow is like helping an acorn grow; they must watch for…

Chen, Ssu-Kuang; Liu, Yih-Lan; Lin, Sunny S. J. – Educational Psychology, 2022
In research on math self-concept (MSC) formation, very few studies have juxtaposed the effects of math grades, math ability, school-average math grades, and school-average math ability. However, these factors are important in enabling Taiwanese senior school students to achieve proper MSC and choose a suitable academic track. Thus, the present…

Tak, Chan Choon; Zulnaidi, Hutkemri; Eu, Leong Kwan – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2022
Individuals' perceptions or beliefs about their mathematical aptitude are commonly classified as mathematics self-efficacy. Conversely, metacognitive awareness is characterized as a phenomenon that presents itself in a variety of ways as people engage with objects and circumstances in their everyday lives. The objective of this quantitative…
